"There's a scene in Star Wars where Grand Moff Tarkin strides into his council room on the Death Star announcing the dissolution of the Imperial Senate. His officers express concern over the Emperor's ability to maintain control of star systems without this governing body. To this Tarkin retorts, 'Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station.'

This exchange made me consider the motivation behind the Emperor's construction of Darth Vader. I'm not referring to just the cybernetic bits maintaining Vader's body but also the active manipulation of his mind to bring him to the dark side. The Emperor created in Vader a weapon no different from the Death Star in its ultimate purpose, a means of generating fear amongst the vast populace he ruled. An administrative tool that became the executor of the Emperor's cruel commands. With that in mind, I decided to depict Vader as a facility harnessing and directing his immense natural power towards malicious ends."
- artist, Rob Jones

I love Robert's Dead Weather posters, so I'm beyond excited for this piece to be released.

I'm a fan of this piece.

I see a bit of Wilford Brimley in it:

I don't own any Rob Jones posters, but I'm liking the Steam Punk look on this one, thing is can I be bothered to sit around waiting for this to drop? Are they not sending out emails when the poster goes live anymore?

I think its kind of brilliant to design a Darth Vader collage from circa 1800's clip art. Well done.
I'd love to see a process thread.

I'd love to own this print but no... I will never wait around for another Mondo drop.

No, they aren't. But there is still a Tweet.

and I had to be one of the suckers to buy one because I missed the sale by a few minutes. I'm not a happy camper right now but I'm sure I'll be fine when the print arrives. :roll:
